Brandish begins with Ares, a swordsman, being chased by Dela, when they both fall underground. The goal of the game is pretty much to get Ares out of there. Dela’s side isn’t the focus of the original Brandish, but it’s a new element in the PSP remake.
In Brandish: The Dark Revenant you also get to play as Dela, who doesn’t mind exploring dungeons with a bare minimum amount of armor. Since Dela is a wizard she should play differently from Ares in the dungeon too. This video gives up a clue how with clips of her using hit and run tactics and fire spells.
